Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

Merger Agreement

On August 31, 2010, Kenexa Corporation (“Kenexa”), Salary.com, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Salary.com”), and Spirit Merger Sub, Inc., a newly formed Delaware corporation and a wholly owned subsidiary of Kenexa (“Merger Sub”), entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”) pursuant to which (i) Merger Sub will commence a cash tender offer (the “Offer”) to purchase all of the issued and outstanding shares of common stock, par value $0.0001 per share, of Salary.com (each, a “Share”), at a price per share equal to $4.07, net to the sellers in cash without interest thereon and less any applicable withholding taxes (the “Offer Price”), and (ii) following consummation of the Offer, Merger Sub will merge with and into Salary.com (the “Merger”), with Salary.com as the surviving corporation (the “Surviving Corporation”), pursuant to which each outstanding Share will be converted into the right to receive the Offer Price, except for those Shares held by Salary.com, Kenexa or Merger Sub, and other than those Shares with respect to which statutory rights of appraisal under Section 262 of the Delaware General Corporation Law have been perfected.  The aggregate purchase price to be paid by Kenexa or Merger Sub pursuant to the Offer and the Merger is expected to be approximately $80 million in cash.

Pursuant to the terms and conditions of the Merger Agreement, Kenexa and Merger Sub agreed that Merger Sub would commence the Offer as promptly as practicable (but in no event later than 10 business days) after the date of the Merger Agreement, and that the Offer will remain open for at least 20 business days.

The obligation to accept payment and pay for the Shares tendered in the Offer is subject to customary conditions, including, among other things: (1) that the number of Shares that have been validly tendered and not validly withdrawn prior to the then scheduled expiration date of the Offer, together with the number of Shares (if any) then owned by Kenexa and its subsidiaries, represent at least a majority of the total number of outstanding Shares on a fully diluted basis; (2) approval under, or the expiration or termination of any waiting period (and any extensions thereof) applicable to the transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement under, the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, as amended, and any other applicable foreign antitrust, competition or similar statutes or regulations; and (3) there shall not be instituted, pending or threatened in writing any suit, action or proceeding by any governmental entity (i) concerning or challenging the transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement, including the Offer and the Merger or (ii) seeking to require divestiture by Kenexa or Merger Sub of all or any of the Shares.

Subject to the terms and conditions of the Merger Agreement, Salary.com has granted Merger Sub an option (the “Top-Up Option”) to purchase an aggregate number of newly issued Shares that, when added to the number of Shares owned by Parent and Merger Sub at the time of such exercise, constitutes one Share more than 90% of the Shares then outstanding immediately after the issuance of the Top-Up Option Shares on a fully diluted basis, subject to applicable regulatory requirements and there being sufficient authorized Shares available for issuance.

The Merger Agreement contains customary representations, warranties and covenants of the parties.  Certain representations and warranties in the Merger Agreement were used for the purpose of allocating risk between the Kenexa, Merger Sub and Salary.com, rather than establishing matters of fact. Accordingly, the representations and warranties in the Merger Agreement may not constitute the actual state of facts about Kenexa, Merger Sub and Salary.com.

Salary.com has agreed to conduct its business in the ordinary course during the interim period between the execution of the Merger Agreement and consummation of the Merger.  In addition, Salary.com has agreed not to engage in certain kinds of transactions at any time prior to the date Shares are first accepted by Merger Sub in the Offer, and not to solicit alternative acquisition proposals or, subject to certain exceptions that permit Salary.com’s board of directors to comply with its fiduciary duties, respond to such proposals.

The Merger Agreement contains customary termination provisions for Kenexa and Salary.com that, under specified circumstances, would require Salary.com to pay Kenexa a termination fee equal to $3,850,000.

Tender and Support Agreement

Concurrently with the execution of the Merger Agreement, certain Salary.com stockholders (together, the “Significant Stockholders”) entered into a Tender and Support Agreement with Kenexa and Merger Sub (the “Tender Agreement”). Pursuant to the Tender Agreement, among other things, each Significant Stockholder has agreed to tender in the Offer, and not withdraw, all of the Shares owned by such Significant Stockholder, as well as any other Shares acquired by such Significant Stockholder after the date of the Tender Agreement. As of August 31, 2010, the Significant Stockholders together owned approximately 33.0% of the Shares outstanding and approximately 28.5% of the Shares on a fully diluted basis.

Each Significant Stockholder entered into the Tender Agreement solely in such Significant Stockholder’s capacity as the owner of such Significant Stockholder’s Shares and nothing therein in any way restricts or limits the Significant Stockholder from taking (or omitting to take) any action solely in the Significant Stockholder’s capacity as a director or officer of Salary.com or otherwise fulfilling the Significant Stockholder’s fiduciary obligations as a director or officer of Salary.com, in each case subject to the limitations set forth in the Merger Agreement.

Daoust Non-Competition Agreement

Concurrent with the execution of the Merger Agreement, Kenexa and Paul R. Daoust, the interim Chief Executive Officer of Salary.com, entered into a Non-Competition and Non-Solicitation Agreement (the “Non-Competition Agreement”).  The Non-Competition Agreement is effective only upon the closing of the acquisition of a majority of the outstanding Shares by Kenexa or a subsidiary of Kenexa.

Pursuant to the Non-Competition Agreement and in consideration of Kenexa’s agreement to enter into the Merger Agreement with Salary.com, Mr. Daoust cannot, for the four year period following the effective date of the Merger, engage, as an employee, officer or any other operational capacity, in any business or enterprise that is engaged in the business segments in which Salary.com is engaged as of the effective date of the Merger.  During this four year period, Mr. Daoust cannot solicit, divert, or take away, or attempt to solicit, divert, or take away, the business or patronage of any of Salary.com’s clients, customers, or business partners who Salary.com served in the year preceding the effective date of the Merger.  Additionally, for one year following the effective date of the Merger, Mr. Daoust cannot induce or attempt to induce any executive officer, who was an executive officer of Salary.com as of the effective date of the Merger, to terminate his or her employment with Salary.com.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, Mr. Daoust may serve as a director or consultant to a business or enterprise that is engaged in the business segments in which Salary.com is engaged as of the effective date of the Merger, provided that Mr. Daoust does not serve in an occupational capacity for such business or enterprise.

On August 31, 2010, Kenexa Technology, Inc. (“KTI”), a wholly owned subsidiary of Kenexa, entered into a credit agreement (the “Credit Agreement”) with PNC Bank, National Association, as administrative agent, and the lenders party thereto.  The maximum amount available under the revolving credit facility is $25,000,000 including a sublimit of up to $2,000,000 for letters of credit. The Credit Agreement will terminate, and all borrowings will become due and payable, on August 30, 2013. Kenexa and each of its U.S. subsidiaries (other than the New York and Puerto Rico subsidiaries) (collectively, the “Guarantors”) are guarantors of the obligations under the Credit Agreement.

KTI’s borrowings under the Credit Agreement bear interest at either the LIBOR Rate plus 225 basis points or the Base Rate plus 125 basis points. Interest on LIBOR borrowings is calculated on an actual/360 day basis and is paid on the last day of each interest period. LIBOR advances are available for periods of 1, 2, 3 or 6 months. LIBOR pricing is adjusted for any statutory reserves.
